I do agree with this, but then again for barbell curls for instance, I definitely use my legs and lean back a little bit to launch the weight up. However, when at the top I squeeze my biceps for a second and then go down slowly.

And if I'm unable to slightly use other parts to launch the bar up, then I'd have to go down in weight, which would decrease my gains. So for myself, I find that SLIGHTLY launching the bar up, but then squeezing at the top and slowly coming down is more beneficial for gains.
